ANIMA!’s ‘blood’ is a rousing and well-wrought track that perfectly integrates electronic and indie styles into a compelling whole. The song begins with a hypnotic melody which moves slowly but surely into a complex fabric of sounds, incorporating beautiful electronic beats and swirling, atmospheric synths. The vocals are powerful, moving and really get to the heart of the song’s contemplative and sentimental words. With a combination of poetic grace and raw honesty, ‘Blood’ goes beneath the surface to get at deep themes of human connection and the complicated nature of the human heart. From this track we can say that in addition to being sonically adventurous, the band also knows how to touch you deeply on an emotional level. For anyone who likes the music that challenges boundaries and touches the heart, it’s a riveting listen.
